The answer flair is fine for me, but your comment is "5 hours ago". Pretty strange considering your question is only 1 hour+ old.

comment Reversing the clause pattern “~ほう~より”
@sawa, I observed that より precedes ほう for (2) and (1'). I learned a "default" structure where ほう precedes より, and was wondering if it made a difference if the sentence was rearranged.
